vin number ?

Postby rabbott5 » Tue Jul 12, 2011 4:53 pm



I'm looking at a "2007" but when I looked at the vin number listed it doesn't match. I think it is a partial typo, but it looks to be an 06. Any thoughts?

I cut-and-pasted that VIN into a few search sites, and they ALL said that there was something wrong with it, and one said that there is a check-digit that is incorrect, which is there to prevent VIN altering and forgery. Better look a little closer and find out what's up with that.

This might help in determining what is up with the VIN........It's a little "dated", but still works.
